Philip Colman of MST Lawyers takes an in-depth look at the franchising sector in Australia:
"On the whole, the franchise sector has coped well with the Franchising Code. Certain flaws have been recognised over time and it is expected that by the commencement of 2015, many of those flaws will be addressed."
Who’s Who Legal brings together Bethany Appleby of Wiggin and Dana, Peter Buberis of Kelly Hazell Quill, Richard Rosen of The Richard L Rosen Law Firm and Michael Malloy of DLA Piper to discuss the adoption of franchising in emerging markets, the changing nature of the franchisor and franchisee relationship, levels of financing, and changes to agreements in their jurisdiction.

Who’s Who Legal brings together four of the leading practitioners in the world to discuss key issues facing litigators today.
Who’s Who Legal brings together Michael Schler of Cravath Swaine & Moore, Michael Honiball of Webber Wentzel, Jennifer Fuller of Fenwick & West and Jean-Blaise Eckert of Lenz & Staehelin to discuss the impact of increasing inter state collaboration on tax avoidance, competition from accountacy firms, and the continued emphasis of governments on tax disclosure and transparency on their practices.
Ana Cláudia Akie Utumi of TozziniFreire Advogados explores the future of tax planning in light of the increasing focus on tax transparency by governments around the world:
"Tax has always been on government agendas, but the current debate is about more than what taxes will be created or changed. What’s now being discussed is the fundamentals of each tax system, and how limits might be established for companies to have less flexibility to decide where and how to operate."
